Since forming in 2003, The Killers have skyrocketed to international fame, spawning some of the most memorable anthems of the past two decades. The retro-rock group consists of singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers, drummer Ronnie Vannucci, guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer. The band’s multi-platinum 2004 debut, “Hot Fuss,”peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 and featured acclaimed tracks such as “Somebody Told Me,” “Mr. Brightside,” “All These Things That I've Done” and “Smile Like You Mean It,” all of which became worldwide chart hits. In 2005, the accolades began pouring in — The Killers won the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist, received three Grammy Award nominations and were named the World's Best Selling New Group at the World Music Awards.
The band toured for two years straight behind “Hot Fuss,” playing more than 400 shows before returning to Las Vegas to begin to work on the follow-up album with legendary producers Alan Moulder and Flood. The result, a love letter of sorts to their hometown entitled “Sam’s Town,” was released in 2006 and spent 42 weeks on the Billboard Top 200. A b-sides collection entitled “Sawdust” was released in 2007 followed by their third studio album, “Day & Age,” which was released to widespread critical praise in 2008, anchored by the massive single “Human.”
The Killers released “Battle Born” in 2012 and ventured on an extensive international tour with a stop at the world-renowned Wembley Stadium. After a decade of making music, The Killers released a “best of” collection, “Direct Hits” (2013), featuring two new songs alongside classics from the band’s stacked catalog. Their chart-topping 2017 album, “Wonderful, Wonderful,” garnered the band their first No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 chart the week of its release in the U.S. In 2020, The Killers added another critically acclaimed album to their discography with the release of “Imploding the Mirage,” which landed in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, making it their sixth Top Ten album in the U.S.
In 2021, The Killers released their eighth album, “Pressure Machine,” a quieter, character-driven document of life in small town America inspired by frontman Brandon Flowers’ upbringing in rural Utah. In 2022, they embarked on their largest, sold-out tour to date, playing stadiums in North America and beyond. The ubiquitously known band has sold over 25 million albums worldwide and headlined top festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. Doors for both shows open at 7 p.m.
